Embroidered And Appliqued Chinese Silk Skirt

Embroidered And Appliqued Chinese Silk Skirt

This lovely covvie skirt has several attractive features. The pale terracotta silk has a ton sur ton design and is pleated. The embroidery and applique work is finely done and resonates with ancient Chinese symbols, including the lotus flower and swastika. It retains the original straps. Some minor stains, but the silk and embroidered areas are in very good condition.
